Great Recordings and Reviews / Re: Turntableism

Not sure what you are asking here if not for recommendations for recordings on LP. Guess I'm not cool enough for you. (You would do well do listen to some of this music BTW!!)

My mother AND my aunt just died of COVID-19 last week, and in the midst of a lockdown, I was just looking for some human interaction.

I give up.
André,

I am so very sorry to hear of your losses!  One of which would be hard enough to cope with.

Like you, I thought that Mandryka was asking about favorite recordings on LP, but was also a bit confused as there is also already a thread on vinyl.

All the best wishes to you and your family,

PD

Amazing!  Thank you so much for sharing that!  By the way, if you click on the link that they have on their website (to more of his pictures), there's one to me that looks like a rabbit.  :)  This one:

Sure, but it sounds weird for my ears because I have never before even heard about this "genre/style", which is weird in itself.

My first thought when I saw  the word Turntablism was DJ. But this is obviously only part of the concept. It seems to be about a very advanced DJ-ism.

And now to some music.

As you need
As you can
Afford to do

The SQ would be a duplication (I have recordings with LaSalle Q), but there are 3 other CDs of music.
It's very good, as are their Webern and Berg albums.

Oh, okay. That starts to explain things. My knowledge of music movements of that time period is very weak. For example "electronic music" of the 50's and 60's is for the most part silly for my ears. Sinewave and white noise generators.  ;D  Imo in the 70's the technology started to be adequate to create good electronic music, but even at that time it was clumsy.

Well the most impressive piece of electronic music I’ve heard is Stockhausen’s Hymnen III and IV, 1968. When that man interrupts the white noise and sine waves and says bizarrely “faites votre jeu messieurs” it is like I’m taken to another planet.
